    Marv, is there a revised timeline for #7 to #12 to be ready? Roughly how many weeks as it looks today.

    We are checking with Tribute.

    We do have a plan B interstage if Tribute cannot deliver or takes too long.

    Thanks for the update Marv - fingers crossed Tribute delivers and look forward for future updates.

    Plan B - of course many after number 6 could be asking themselves: Will it sound as good as plan A. Otherwise it would have been plan A? :)

    Im not in the queue.

    However, considering all the hype and measurements of the tributes in chang, would be a major pity if not all of the studios are made with the tribute interstages.

    I prefer the B. Craig prefers the A. :D They aren't that different - the best two interstages we've heard. There was already a huge order for the A and going to plan B would require retooling / redesign of the chassis. The plan B (Monolith interstages) was my idea just in case.

    That being said, we are going to stick with plan A until the last minute.

    Marv, in a post in CS you spoke of designing a 2A3 x 4 amp that would have a lot of bling and top quality parts. Are there any plans in developing such an amp and if so, in what ways would it be different from the Studio?

    Hey Marv - we're roughly in that 'start by' window; any delays / issues come up, or are we all 'green lit'?

    Yeah, Marv! I'm itching to have another Denver meet and need to know when he'll get his Studio. :p

    • Power supplies being built starting last week.
    • Metal in from silk screening this week (with a dress plate in front).
    • Amps will be built starting this week.
    • 6 units will be built around this current timeframe.
    • Confirmed with Pieter (this is a good thing) that transformers for 5 additional amps will come in around X-mas.

    I think because of "US domestic" or "Changstar" demand, the bling of the Studio probably went up a little bit. There may still be plans for a super blinged out edition, probably go to Joel Marshall (of former Moth) and give his cut for his designs.

    5 additional Tributes is excellent news to me. Thanks for the update Marv.

    Has the feedback been decided yet with the Studio? I am hopeful it will have great performance with speakers, even more so than the good ole 2a3mk4. And the latter is doing an excellent job.

    Hey Marv - how are things progressing? Any chance you can upload a photo of the front trim plate? Love to see it.

    As you can see, we don't apply Photoshop blur effects to components. :D It's not like you guys, especially the more knowledgeable ones, won't be able to figure it out anyways, so what's the point? The secret is really in the $$$ transformers. Don't roll tubes, roll transformers! Cinemag customs with the tertiary windings at left and Tributes with the nano-crystalline cores at right. Feedback is 1.45db. The boards in the middle are the 50kHz filament heater amps.

    #001 should be delivered before X-mas.

    Fantastic! Really like the front plate. I've used that same knob before - nice. I have a cleared area of my audio rack for #001 :)

    Marv,
    please Reply Here once 001 ships out ok?
    it's getting cold out and I've been camped out on Mister R's doorstep for about 3 days now already.

    to the rest of you SBAF,
    feel free to send blankets, food and drinks as my stalking vigil continues.....

    Heh. I was wondering what the frozen lump was... :)

    I have to say - that amp looks damn near complete (comparing it to earlier picture of the prototype). How much 'before Christmas' might we see it shipped? Are shipping cases on site, or are you waiting for them to be delivered?
